Minimize Electronic Waste with Circuit Board Jewelry

NewImage

From treehugger:

While electronic waste can be sent off to a conventional recycling facility, there are other, more creative, ways to get the job done. Jewelry artist Amanda Preske of Rochester, New York’s Circuit Breaker Labs takes circuit boards from old computers, cell phones, calculators, monitors, and office telephones and transforms them into delicate necklaces, bracelets, earrings, belt buckles and cufflinks. Preske says:

We live in a digital age, so it’s only appropriate that computers, calculators and memory cards are put to good use when they break rather than being discarded. The boards, which come in a range of colors, are enhanced through the use of resin, which also protects each piece. Plus, all sterling silver items are made with recycled silver.
